125 g of butter
4 eggs 
350 g of saffron honey and myself I always buy raw honey.
1 pinch of salt 
120 g flour
50 cl of whole milk (you can substitute honey by syrup towers ' agave or maple or cane) for decoration: nuts (or figs according to your taste) icing sugar 

Preparation: Step 1: Melt the butter and preheat your oven at 150 ° C (not convection).
Butter your cooking tin or line with parchment paper for easy turning out 

Step 2: Separate the white of the egg yolks Beat the yolks with saffron wild honey and 1 whisk until towers appear like foam and the mix whitens Then add the melted butter in, add the salt, flour and milk stirring between each addition 

Step 3: add in the egg whites and add them gently into the dough with the whip without breaking them The dough is very liquid, whites will appear as lumps on the surface, but do not integrate them completely and leave a bit lumpy!

Step 4: Allow 15 minutes then pour into your mould and smooth the surface with the blade of your spatula/knife and make attractive peaks / towers,  a large knife with a smooth not sharp blade is best for working it. Bake for about 55 minutes, & at the end of cooking it must be still melting and soft at the centre.

Step 5: Place the minimum charge 2 hours until it freezes before turning out When ready to serve, cut through sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with nuts or other garnish of your liking !!!!! et voila as they say in Paris !!!
